About the Author
Gherasim Luca was born Salman Locker in 1913 into a liberal Jewish family in Bucharest. Speaking Yiddish, Romanian, German, and French, he traveled frequently to Paris in the latter part of the 1930s and became acquainted with the French Surrealists. Together with Gellu Naum, Paul Paun, Virgil Teodorescu, and Dolfi Trost, Luca founded the Romanian Surrealist Group in Bucharest. He left Romania in 1952, moving to Paris via Israel, spending 40 years in France before committing suicide in 1994 by jumping into the Seine.
